Sound Communities


Connect, Engage, Inspire 




A small group of students from the Winnicott Centre in Torquay learnt how to produce a radio feature around the topic of reading and why it matters to them and to other members of the community. They learnt how to interview, record on location, research and digitally edit. This feature was broadcast twice on Riviera FM. One of these broadcasts involved them presenting live in the studio during their RSL.
